Citroen C3 Aircross Features
The C3 Aircross’s resemblance to the C3 hatchback’s appearance is one of its most distinguishing features. The headlamps that flank the grille and the slim LED DRLs on the SUV’s fascia have a similar design. It receives a big bumper, although the air dam and the skid plate below it take up most of it. It also gets cladding on both doors and a powerful rear end with C-shaped taillights and a huge bumper.
Citroen C3 Aircross Changes Over C3
Even the C3 Aircross’ cabin is similar to the C3, although with a few small changes. The dashboard design and AC vents have been changed, but Citroen has given the interior of the small SUV a dual-tone theme. The main distinction is that the C3 Aircross comes in two seating arrangements: five and seven. For situations where you have more luggage than passengers, the third-row seats are also removable.
